Travelling exhibition 'Slavery past and churches in the Netherlands'

15 October until 27 December 2021

We must move on - not with denial but with awareness. With the traveling visual exhibition 'Slavery past and churches in the Netherlands', the initiators hope to contribute to the joint processing of the slavery past in the Netherlands. The exhibition can be seen at the PThU in Amsterdam until Christmas.


The image exhibition is an initiative of the Working Group Heilzame Verwerking Slavernijverleden in collaboration with the Protestant Theological University (PThU). We are delighted to invite you to take a look at this traveling exhibition curated by Vincent van Velsen.

Why this exhibition?

The exhibition is an innovative initiative to facilitate small-scale human-to-human encounters in a polarizing society and to change entrenched thought patterns, imaginations and attitudes.


The official opening of the exhibition will take place on 14 October 2021 (privately). It will be open to the public from October 15. The exhibition can be viewed at the PThU until Christmas. After that, the exhibition will travel to various ecclesiastical communities in the Netherlands to make encounters around the theme even more context-determining.
